Australopithecus africanus individuals lived at least one million years earlier than previous dating indicated. This is the result from dating a cave deposit from the Sterkfontein site (South Africa), one of the richest in australopithecine remains, where the fossil of Mrs Ples, one of the first complete skulls of this kind of hominin, was discovered in 1947.

The quantity of data stored worldwide is estimated to increase to 175 zettabytes 2 by 2025. If we were to store this data on Blu-ray discs, it would require 23 stacks from the Earth and the Moon. The growing quantity of data is exceeding storage capacity, requiring alternative storage solutions that are both durable and consume little energy, given that some data centres have a carbon footprint equal to that of an entire city.
